It's over at last, thank Grodd. That finale was... something. Yes, we're talking about The Flash, again, but for what will HOPEFULLY be the last time. In this retrospective episode, we discuss whether the long-running CW series had a distinct rise and decline, as many believe, or if in fact the elements which led to its supposed downfall were present from the very beginning.

Once again, a female-led MCU feature has stirred up controversy for being "the worst thing Marvel has created and yet another example of woke garbage holding up a middle finger to comic book fans!" Or was it an accurate meta-commentary on toxic fandoms, which successfully baited the exact reaction it predicted it would get? Maybe everyone's overthinking it and needs to chill out, because how are people seriously not tired of all th...

Did we love Thor: Love and Thunder or was it a blunder? Was the Ms. Marvel series a CW-level teen drama? What was all that comic-con Marvel business about? Once again, we talk all things Marvel on this episode. As a heads up, we had some technical issues with the audio recording, but rest assured we are currently at work finding a padded cell for Jack to record from in the future.

Warner Bros' new brawler game not named Warner Brawlers or Smash Warners has now unofficially but officially released as an "open beta."

That's right, back to talking about DC again. Will we ever cover anything that isn't Marvel or DC? Maybe at some point, we'll just have to wait and see. Not today though, because this episode we have a spoilers discussion about the latest season of Young Justice and whether the move to streaming-only has affected its quality.
